Westy's Expands into Midtown

Posted By on Mon, Jan 7, 2019 at 11:35 AM


Having a late-night craving for some that famous Westy's hot fudge pie, but cannot — cannot! — put on shoes?

Well, you're in luck. Westy's has expanded into Midtown and is now offering delivery.

Westy's owner Jake Schorr says he recognized a transition in the restaurant industry and that meant delivery.

The restaurant, in the old Beeker's space at 1607 Madison near Pho Binh, has a small dine-in area and offers pick-up as well.

Schorr says Westy's Express will eventually offer the full Westy's menu as well as some additional items, including a package meal, such as country-fried steak with three vegetables, and a number of dessert items.

Westy's Express opens at 4 p.m., but will eventually be open from 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.

Westy's is using its own drivers, but Schorr expects to sign up with Door Dash.

When asked why he's opened an second location, Schorr jokes, "I don't know better."

He says, "I wanted to expand our presence but I couldn't do that Downtown. That's how I looked at it."
